Good job, everyone who didn't fill out the census. According to the official census data released in Washington this morning, New York is losing two congressional seats, giving us the same number of seats we had in the 1800s. New York and Ohio are the only two states to lose two seats; Pennsylvania and New Jersey each lost one, and Texas gained four.
The state Assembly and the Senate are responsible for drawing the new districts, and the Daily News suspects they will come from Long Island and upstate. New York still has the third-most congressional seats, though now we share that title with Florida. But we can still count most of the retirees down there as dual-citizens, right?
